If your summer goals included bee-ing a great reader, we’ve got you covered.
These two books for all ages star the amazing bee—and they happen to be written by a couple amazing San Diegans.
Illustrated by Vivian Yiwing, Bee a Dreamer (Social Motion Publishing, 2018) tells a vivid and fantastical story about Bella the bee and her best friend Sam the giraffe. Together, they share dreams, face fears, and discover bravery on a journey to Africa.
Proceeds from the sale of each book benefit the Planet Bee Foundation, which promotes environmental stewardship among youth with bee-centric educational outreach.
Explore fascinating details about the queen bee’s life cycle and the inner workings of her colony through first-person encounters, wild bee colony rescues, illustrations, and stunning imagery documented through Kearney’s work.
Reminiscent of I Spy and Where’s Waldo?, fans will be delighted and visually consumed by the book’s queen-spotting challenges with 48 gorgeous and glossy fold-out pages featuring the queen hidden among her swarm. It certainly left us musing about honeycomb and seeing everything in black and yellow.
